My name is Beate and I'm born in 1964 and growing up in Kleingartach. I was a little child, as the Charlie Baztery was in our area. But I remember me of sepcial moments in my childhood with the soldiers from there. They were very nice if they saw us kids, they had the most time chewing gum for us :o
Next the charly battery my parents had a potato field and when it was a sunny day, the soldiers give us kids ice cream. They stuck the ice cream through the fence :)
As an teenager we spend also time in the "Rose in Niederhofen".
I'm glad to found this page, remember me all the little moments.
And thank you all for your support of us during this time, you leave your home to protect us in Germany. Thank you so much!

My Dad, SFC Jessie Saint , was stationed from1970-1973 in Pforzheim at the Missile Base. Thanks for the memories that he still can talk about. We showed him the film of what looks like now and he could tell us before the man that shot the video where things were in the Launching area.

I served at C Battery Hardheim from August 1963 until April 1965. I was mos 179.10 radar crewman. There were some fun times and some not so fun. We did go to Ft. Bliss to fire a missile in early 65. We were also a mobile missile site in that we had Ajax and Hercules missiles and went to the field in 1964 after the snow melted. It was very slushy and quite a fiasco. If you remember the dates or myself please feel free to contact me at rayshanahan@comcast.net.

I was assigned to C/3/71 from January 1979 to November 1981. I served as the Launcher Platoon Leader under Captain Larry Manning, The Fire Control Platoon Leader under CPT Jeffrey Knapp and the Executive Officer under CPT David Inglee (Sorry can't spell). This is a great website and it has brought back some great memories. If anyone out there remembers me and you want to get in touch. My email is listed. Thanks to all who created this site.

I was the XO at C 1/67 in Hardheim from 1966-67 before I was assigned to 32nd AADCOM IG Team, headed by LTCOL Jesse Lant. I just noted on this site that my battery 1st Sergeant, John L. Tedder was deceased. 1Sgt Tedder had as much impact on my life, both in the military and in my civilian career, as anyone I have ever known. When I reported to the battery, fresh out of ROTC and the Nike School at Fort Bliss, Top "sat my * * * in a chair" in a chair in his office, told me to "shut up and listen to him (and the other NCO's and Warrants)and not to speak out until I knew what the hell I was talking about". Sage advice that I followed to the letter! 1Sgt Tedder taught me more about managing people and how to treat people than any book I ever read and any management training I ever attended anywhere. Top was a "good old boy", chock full of wisdom, hard-earned experience, and just plain old common sense. I loved the man, and I mourn his passing. John Tedder was the kind of man the professional military is and was built around. I just hope that when he got to the Pearly Gates, he didn't tell God to "sit on your * * * on that golden throne and listen to me." Although it's 50/50 that he may just have done that. God Bless you, John Tedder.

I served with D 3/84, a Pershing Missile Battery from 2/70 to 2/73. Kleingartach was our main CAS (Combat Alert Status) site and I spent my time with my platoon on Pad 1, your alpha section. Pershing was a tactical nuclear ballistic missile, 10000 lb solid fuel and we kept 4 hot rounds on the pads at all times with another 5 rounds assembled. The pictures and storyline are great and I remember many things after seeing the pictures - I can tell you I went swimming in the resevoir (beer was involved).

Thank you for sharing.
